Peace River Revisited
This year’s vacation found us back at one of our favorite spots, Sanibel Island, FL. The Peace River is within driving distance from there and I was hoping to hook up with one of the local outfitters for a kayak trip but no luck. I scrounged up an old milk crate and some odds and ends from the hotel, a quick trip to one of the off island hardware stores and I was able to rig up a respectable sift. Once there I hooked up with one of the locals and we have a great day. I even ended up with my first complete Meg, admittedly a little beat up but complete.
